Vitro Announces the Passing of Veteran Employee Joe Sennese
Posted: November 20, 2022 | Tradewinds
It is with great sadness that Vitro Architectural Glass announces the passing of longtime colleague and friend Joe Sennese on November 7 at the age of 55 after a long battle with cancer.
Sennese’s legacy of humble service to our customers and architects in the Chicago and Great Lakes region has inspired countless Vitro team members and endeared him to all who knew him.
Sennese began his career with Vitro, formerly PPG Glass, in 2005 as an architect representative. He quickly advanced his career in the glass business by becoming a national architectural manager before leading the architectural representatives in the Eastern United States as Vitro’s director of architectural development. In June 2022, Sennese was appointed manager of product sales and business development.
“Joe was an invaluable part of our team and served as a mentor to so many in the industry throughout his career,” said Glenn Davis, vice president of international sales and sales development at Vitro. “We’re all deeply saddened by his loss and we’re thinking of his family in this difficult time.”
To honor Joe’s legacy, Vitro contributed to the Amyloidosis Foundation in his name.
